thanks for reply,im not there right now back tomorrow

ill check and post back,do you think it could be something to do with drive lettering?

Yes if drives are not allocated a letter they will not show up, plus windows can sometimes have the last drive set with a letter lower than the number of drive in the system.

TweakUI can set the last drive letter.
